Publisher's Summary

With its emphasis on traditional values, family, faith, military service, good manners, small government, and independent-minded people, the South should certainly rise again. Far from being the backwater of prejudice and ignorance that the liberal media would have you believe, the South has always been the center of American culture. From the founding fathers (Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, and many others) to the frontiersmen who tamed the West, to the country music and NASCAR-loving, Bible-thumping heart of "red state" America, the South is the quintessence of what's original, unique, and most loved about American culture.

Real History

Not a bunch of lies like the school system teaches. Great information, and explanation of Southern Pride, and also great explanation of why the Confederate Flag.

There's a Lot of Good Things Going on Down South!

Author Clint Johnson, gives us a different perspective on the South and the roles that the South played in shaping America. Since the Southern Confederates lost the "Civil War", we tend to hear only the points of view of the victorious North, but everything isn't always what it seems.

This book brings out the facts of a lot of people who played significant roles in trying to prevent the country from entering into the war in the first place. The treatment of slaves, by both the North and South, and the roles that so many enslaved people had in shaping our country... that they were willing to fight for, on both sides.

With all of the recent books and movies about President Lincoln and his greatness... was he really all that great? Was he our greatest President? What were his true motives for enacting the Emancipation Proclamation which freed the slaves? I know what the "history books" tell us, but now I know so much more.

The South has been on the move for a while now as it is attracting a lot of the Northern population and companies down that way over the last several decades. Hopefully, our country has learned it's lessons form the past as we now watch over countries around the world fight for their independence. Let's learn from history, but seek out different perspectives on history too so that you have a broader perspective.
